Panalpina opens second branch in Wuhan

Jun 16, 2011

Panalpina has opened a second branch office in Wuhan, Hubei province, strengthening its Wuhan Centralized Services Center and further expanding its services in China’s inland cities.

As one of the largest transportation hubs and energetic business centers in China’s inland, Wuhan plays a strategic role in the company’s “Go-West” strategy. “This investment confirms Panalpina’s commitment towards growth in China and to providing exemplary service to customers doing business in and out of Hubei, Hunan and Jiangxi provinces,” said Robert Timmerman, Managing Director Greater China.

Panalpina offers its customers in Hubei, Hunan and Jiangxi a full portfolio of services including access to an extensive global air network and international ocean ports. The company also provides a strategic mix of overland transportation solutions. This year, Panalpina has responded to high demand for reliable connections to Europe-Russia by introducing full rail service.

Panalpina’s strength is its global network with unique product offerings for various industry sectors in terms of supply chain and logistics solutions. “Hubei, Hunan and Jiangxi’s fast growing hi-tech, automotive and pharmaceutical companies will now have the local presence of a reliable global player providing solutions specifically designed for their industries,” added Timmerman.
